What a find! You’ve provided a treasure trove of bedside US resources. I’m a doc from a remote part of Canada and this is the sort of resource that informs practice, saves travel, and empowers rural docs to get answers fast. We’re on the cusp of a revolution in medical care and education, and this site exemplifies that. Thanks!
Thanks Tracy and glad to be able to create a helpful resource for you – hoping to continue to improve and expand!
You are gold, and everyting you do is as well! Keep up the awesome work. BBC
Thanks Ben! YOU are gold!
I Second that! I constantly find myself referring to this site instead of my handy US book b/c it keeps staying up to date (and I feel like I can hear your voice through the pages with a level of excitement that only Laleh can exude 🙂 Such a lovely and well put-together resource!
haha – you are too kind Nic, and very much missed.
I recently took my PVI exam with Pearson VUE through ARDMS as well as some other residents and recently read about Pearson score mishap and wonder if this may have taken place with one of my residents who did not pass by one point. I called ARDMS and was told “NO”, but then heard about other ARDMS score delays with Pearson and other ARDMS score concerns which took place about 18 to 36 months ago. Can anyone help with perhaps additional details. I am surprised by this revelation…if true.
Dr. Cooper, I havent heard anything about it but will keep my ears and eyes open and get back to you should I hear anything. You can try asking the ACEP US Section as well to get a bigger pool of people to ask.
Your site is terrific. I am a radiologist with an interest in advancing POC sonos and MSK ultrasound. Thanks for the amazing work.

Holt, Thank you so much for your interest, and for helping advance POCUS too.
